      I don’t know who advised President Trump to hire this guy! Ditto for Sessions and Rosenstein. Session should have been asked to resign or fired once DJT learned he recused himself from the Russia Investigation
      Obama had Holder and Lynch, the FBI, the CIA all following his orders and no one questioned his impropriety.
      I wonder how many of his picks and decisions are influenced by Ivanka and Jared.

    George Mason University students blamed President Donald Trump for the government shutdown, in a Campus Reform video released Friday.

    Many called for Trump to compromise with the Democrats to end the five-week shutdown, but were surprised when they learned he already made offers and it was turned down by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

    I wish people would read or listen to my words on the Border Wall. This was in no way a concession. It was taking care of millions of people who were getting badly hurt by the Shutdown with the understanding that in 21 days, if no deal is done, it’s off to the races!

    I came home after a hard day of hauling wood having to cut trees for a emergency septic repair. Had help from a young man(22) whom I’ve mentored for the past eight years, got him to graduate high school, encouraging him in his dreams helping him set goals. A good guy, wants to be a marine feels he’s to stupid to pass the test. He thinks what’s happening is just wrong.

    I agree. I heard some of the presidents speech while toing and froing in the truck. Why all the negativity here today? I was shocked to see 3200 comments and not a whole lot of faith in the president tonight. I’m not feeling that way! It’s not just on President Trump to fix this. I see people saying to do this, do that. Well what are you doing?

    I’m a 66yr old gay male, I said at the time that the courts mandated gay marriages it was wrong, not the will of the people and people were going to be hurt eventually, said the same thing when 18 and courts decided via roe v wade abortion was ok. That proved right when New York said it was ok to KILL children a day before birth or just after if umbilical cord still attached. The will of the people needs to be made unequivocally clear. Yellow vest,orange vest, March?? I don’t know what to do. I’m willing but I’d sure like some biker buds for backup.

    I’m seriously thinking of getting involved in local politics though with my inclinations and residing in a very rural county I have extreme hesitations. That’s something I have to give serious consideration to, though I’m not sure that matters like it used to.

    My back hurts, hard to stand straight tonight but I’m willing to fight for my country, President and fellow citizens. I’m truly afraid this Cold War will get hot. Have you contributed to build the wall, I have. Will you go to the border to help, I will. Will you go to your state capital with your vest of many colors, couldn’t help the play on Dolly’s coat, like the people of France , I will. Maybe just maybe we the American people should stand and make OUR voices heard. Not fake pre organized voices like at mr stones arraignment today but firm resolute voices in that we’ve had enough of this crap.

    Enough of illegals, enough of the waste, enough of the fraud, enough of the law for thee but not for me.

    Just call me nervous for our country.

Just do what Cortez did, knock on every door and get your name out there and be positive, people will vote for you just because you paid attention to them. I’m willing to fight too. You say you’re nervous but you seem strong and reasonably optimistic too, which I love. You’re good for morale.

        Thanks for the encouragement, I am strong, I am optimistic, I turned my property into a park, been on tv, papers, hosted multiple fundraisers, thousands of people from all over the world have visited. Peaceful, tranquil are the comments, people don’t want to leave. I’ve created a paradise of botanicals that will far exceed my life. Created a redwood paradise for generations that I’d love to turn into a countywide park for generations.

      For people like us, the world is a box of tinder just waiting for a match.

      Those matches come from the least likely places. NO ONE would have predicted that a CNBC commentator from the S&P futures pit in Chicago (Rick Santelli) would make a rant on a business channel that would spark the creation of the Tea Party, which in many ways set the stage for Trump’s election.

      If enough people are angry enough the spark will come.

    Move along, move along. Nothing to see here. /S/

    “Texas Attorney General Announces Voter Fraud Alert: 58,000 Non-Citizens Illegally Voted in Texas Elections”


    Texas should also hitch up with the U.S. Attorney to have these non-citizens prosecuted for false claims of U.S. Citizenship. They made the false claims at least once & some twice, once when they registered to vote &/or when they voted.

    “It is very serious to be charged with making a false claim to citizenship because if a person is deported on this basis, he or she is permanently inadmissible and cannot return to the United States. Furthermore, there is no waiver available for false claims to citizenship and there is limited relief from removal available to noncitizens who lie to obtain government benefits. ”

    The most common false claims to U.S. citizenship occur under the following circumstances:
    * registering to vote in a local, state, or federal election when prohibited from doing so
    * checking “U.S. citizen” on an I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form claiming to be a U.S. citizen on a student loan application
    * attempting to obtain a U.S. passport, and
    * stating that you are U.S. citizen to obtain any other benefit for which U.S. citizenship is required.”
    * even if you apply for a non-government benefit, if it requires U.S. citizenship as a condition of eligibility.

    I am all in in 2020 for Donald Trump. I have lost friends because of Trump. To hell with them. But if we have learned anything is that the Deep State and Democrats and Democrat media are powerful. Obama didnt have tge qualifications go ve a dog catcher but he won the presidency. He screwed up for 4 years and was reelected. Donald Trump saved West VA and WV reelected Manchin. POTUS revived the economy do in gratitude the country gave the House to the Democrats. We never learn. Or at least enough of us. I have seen this scenario play repeatedly on a state level as well as a national level. It doesnt help that even when we elect Republicans they turn out to be Democrats

    What a great day! Explored some new woods and the weather was perfect!

    What’d I miss?

    Seriously though. While I was out, no actual pieces of sky fell on me. The sun rose and set when and where it should have, so, the planet has not yet stopped revolving. Everyone I spoke with today was extremely pleasant and helpful. A walk around the neighborhood revealed children playing in yards, my next-door friends having a cookout and laughter coming from several different areas.

    President Trump still has a good ring to it. I voted for him.

    Hillary is NOT anywhere near the White House.

    Tomorrow looks brighter than ever. If you only know where to look.

          I question it too. Weren’t the other immigration EOs that were stopped based largely on national security? When is an invasion not a national security issue? Guess if the invaders call themselves asylees or refugees, then it magically transforms into solely a humanitarian crisis on their behalf, not ours.


          • MAGADJT says:

            Exactly. Way too many wannabe conservative influencers post these wild speculations as fact. It’s ridiculous and has really hurt the cause, because it tricks people into thinking that there is someone else that will take care of the problem, and there is no need for us to inconvenience ourselves.

      If this is even remotely true, anyone who thinks POTUS is playing 64D chess, can bury that assumption right now. I love the guy but he has made some awful decisions on hires and some awful decisions on who to take advice from. I don’t blame him and probably wouldn’t do any better myself, but I just don’t think he understood how crooked politics really is.


      • California Joe says:

        Exactly! He has to start fighting back by releasing the FISA warrants. If they are full of false statements and exposes crimes by the FBI and DOJ how is that obstruction of justice?


        • For Eyes says:


          Because the Dems have screamed for 2 years that it is, and no one has taken the time to refute it. So in the mind of the public, it IS.

          WHEN the Dems impeach Trump … not if … public acceptance of the outcome is a key political need.

          To repeat … Dems have said its obstruction. No one … NO ONE has said it isn’t.

          It doesn’t matter whether its true.


    • Well, that DC insider may be right, however, I trust that President Trump will handle Lindsay and Nancy, when he deems the time and method appropriate.
      Also, I expect, without any doubt, that wall will be built for sure and there will be no amnesty or anything close to it.
      As for the SOTU: Well, we’ll see about that liddle lady of the house, we’ll just see about that………..


  33. Proud American from Texas says:

    From The Daily Caller article on Congress’ Nonpartisan Research Service:

    Another statute that authorizes the Secretary of Defense to assist civilian law enforcement with counterdrug activities may provide some authority for the construction of barriers along the border. 10 U.S.C. § 284 (Section 284) provides that the Secretary of Defense “may provide support for the counterdrug activities or activities to counter transnational organized crime” of any law enforcement agency, including through the “[c]onstruction of roads and fences and installation of lighting to block drug smuggling corridors across international boundaries of the United States.” …

    Use of Section 284 would not require a declaration of a national emergency under the NEA. However, the DOD’s Section 284 authority to construct fences appears to extend only to “drug smuggling corridors,” a condition that may limit where DOD could deploy fencing.

    Consider this:
    PDJT gets our wall without giving up anything. Dems will lose Hispanic support because of no DACA.
    PDJT can say he’ll consider DACA, but now he needs the visa lottery cancelled, merit based immigration and chain migration cancelled.

    Understand that as the wall is built, drug smuggling corridors will shift causing the need for more wall to be built.

      This makes complete sense. So why has POTUS only focused on talking about the emergency declaration, instead of this seemingly simple solution?
